Fake Plastic Sleeves

I originally had a pleather skirt on with this outfit but good sense and cold weather made me change my mind. When I had the skirt on, I asked the question "is this too much pleather?" to my husband. This is a question one should never have to ask because there is only one answer: if you have to ask, then yes. Pleather has good intentions but maybe not all over my body. 

Excuse the slight wrinkles in the jacket. Sometimes I get angry and take it out on my clothes and wad them up on the floor and forget about them until I realize I'm a disgusting human being and I hang up said clothes. In person, this jacket seems wrinkle free. In camera close up, this jacket looks like its been forgotten about on the bottom of a closet for a month and then hung up for 5 days. This is real life people.

  2. DYING over your trench! I'm still bundled up in lots of layers and warm coats, so I'm jealous that you can wear this spring-like coat right now.

  6. Eh...everyone's clothes have wrinkles. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying to you...just like those women who have rock-hard abs and say they've never worked out a day in their life. Pssshh...no one buys that.

  7. There is no question I own too many striped shirts (navy on white, pale blue on white, beige on white, black on white, black on beige, orange on beige, neon yellow on beige, grey on white with a dolman sleeve), and yet you've just absolutely convinced me that my life will not be complete without a red and white one, too.

  35. Pleather can be tricky. Your jacket does not look like it has been forgotten at the bottom of the closet though. I am always awe struck by your ability to style a top bun. Love it!

  47. I'm assuming the title is a nod to "Fake Plastic Trees." That makes me giggle :) I'm not a Radiohead fan but I like that song because it's in Clueless and Clueless is the best movie ever. Anywho, I love the trench, wrinkles and all, and I'm glad you went with jeans instead of a pleather skirt. Great choice!

  49. I just tried on a camo green jacket with faux leather sleeves today at Marshalls. It was cute but it was cropped so I decided against it but now I wish I'd bought it. LOL. You always look good!

  58. I always hang my clothes on the back of my bathroom door while I take a hot steamy shower. The steam gets the wrinkles out easily, no iron involved!

    Don't apologize for your wrinkles! I didn't even notice them until you pointed them out, and then I scrolled back up to look and thought way more about them than I would have otherwise. 

    I'm only pointing this out because I almost apologized for wrinkles in a blog post the other day, and then told myself that that would only make more people notice them. No one mentioned mine, so I'm just going to pretend they went undetected. I stand by this strategy.

  78. The jeans were a good call with that trench, regardless of the weather :). And I love the bright booties.
